    Pretty much, yes. Even with Katarina and the cost of cleaning up after her the US is still financially better off then most of the rest of the world.

    As for why money? It's not money... it's cash. There is a significant difference. You see when a disaster occures one of the first things that happens is that credit and electronic commerce of any kind is shut down. All people will accept is cash, even from their government. The government can use that cash to do everything from buying supplies to paying local assistance. It can make all the difference between an utter crash of their economy and pulling through.

    There is other assistence given such as helicopters, tents, blankets, and water (all of which cost money), but when it comes to getting the country back on it's feet they need cash.

    My apologies - I did in fact read your staements, Agent Orange 216 I was just getting carried away in my opinions lol (I had been arguing with my family about this very issue that day ) In the end, no matter where anyone stands on the subject, it's a terrible situation. There are several other countries lending aid... And even then, it won't be enough. I just pray that just a little suffering can be relieved.

    his wars are just nonsense,
    dehumaning
    all his stupid secert servicemen would not stop the rath of god on him
    and you darn well know that he making another Veitnam war.
